Halloween Slime!

We're sharing an easy 'recipe' to make Halloween Slime! It's a super simple 'recipe' that you can use to entertain your kids. It makes Frankenstein, a Ghost, and a Pumpkin!


  • 1 bottle of Elmer’s glue 6 oz – 2 white bottles and 1 glitter green bottle.

  • Orange food coloring

  • 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda

  • 1½ TBSP of Contact lens solution. (MUST have Boric Acid in the ingredient list)

  • Optional: 1/4 cup of water (adds more stretch)

  • Small clear jars

  • Googly eyes

  • Black sharpie

How To Make:

  1. In three bowls (one per slime), mix all the ingredients together.

  2. Pour 6 oz of your Elmer’s glue into the bowl - use white glue for the ghost and pumpkin slime.

  3. In a separate bowl, use your green glitter glue for your Frankenstein slime.

  4. Mix in orange food coloring to make orange glue for your pumpkin slime.

  5. Add your 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and mix in thoroughly.

  6. If you're adding the 1/4 cup of water to make it stretchy, do so now.

  7. Now add in your contact lens solution. Start with half of what the recipe calls for and mix in. Then slowly add in the rest. If you find it is still too sticky you can add a bit more. Be careful not to add too much or it will make your slime hard.

  8. Now mix until your slime forms and begins to harden. If it’s not the desirable consistency keep kneading. Note: If you find it to still be too sticky, add a bit more contact lens solution.

  9. Pour the mixture into the clear jars.

  10. Add the googly eyes to your jars.

  11. Draw any faces or features onto the jars.

  12. Have fun!


  • Add 1/4 cup of water to your glue before adding baking soda if you’d like a more stretchy slime.

  • The brand of contact lens solution MUST have Boric Acid in the ingredient list as the acid is what interacts with the glue to form the slime.

  • Please make sure this does not end up in a child's mouth. If it does, please contact your doctor.
